I can’t stop drinking milkshakes they are very costly and high in calories. As I plan to lose weight (it’s piled on the last few months) I’ve bought a blender with the intention of making my own low calorie ones. If I have to drink a milkshake per day and lose weight it needs to be the least calorific possible. I also crave chocolate.

Ive bought some soya milk with is just 70 calories for 200ml then I could just add a few smarties to it or similar. It shouldn’t go over 200 calories.

Has anyone any other ideas which would ensure a good milkshake volume wise but with the least calories?

Instead of adding actual chocolate, you could add a teaspoon of cocoa powder instead perhaps? That would provide the same chocolatey flavour without the sugar and cocoa butter.

You can buy Nesquik powder in supermarkets. Some of that with some skimmed milk is all you need.

Don't worry too much about milk shakes. it's important to make sure that you include some dairy products in your daily diet.

Keep the milkshakes vegan and use cocoa or cacao powder.
Try to stick to flavours like almond, apple, bilberries, carrot, cinammon, grapefruit, peach and vanilla.
Go easy on the strawberries, banana, cherries, oranges and mangos.
Maybe try unsweetened non-dairy milks like almond, cashew and oatmilk.

What’s the logic here? Genuine question

you don't need milkshakes in your life to be happy... if you want something similar, try frozen yoghurt which is like a low calorie ice cream

Low fat milk and a banana, blend it in a nutri bullet and chill. Tastes thick and rick without all the extra fat and calories

switch to protein shakes with almond milk
This is exactly what I do!
30g protein powder (I recommend optimum nutrition) = 120 kcal
180ml Almond milk + ice = 23 kcal
1/2 frozen banana (optional but good for meal replacement and texture) = 53 kcal
= 196 kcal
